What’s next after bikini barista law? Dress code at beach?

Way to go Everett! I’m so happy that despite our epidemic heroin problem, our homeless problem, over crowded jails, mentally ill people wandering around instead of receiving help, unchecked vandalism, horrible roads and deteriorating infrastructure, and yet you chose to spend your time and our money and energy making sure there’s a dress code for bikini baristas (“Everett outlaws bikini-clad workers at ‘quick-service’ shops,” The Herald, Aug. 18).

Are you kidding? Who the hell does it hurt if a young good-looking girl serves a cup of coffee while wearing a bikini? We have the freedom of choice. If we don’t care to see a young girl wearing a bikini, go to a different espresso stand. What century are we living in now? There is nothing illegal about wearing a bikini. What’s next? A dress code at the beach or on the river? Seriously, this is one of the most ridiculous waste-of-time laws I’ve ever seen in this city.

Naked and not afraid,

Susan Martin
